It feels like ages since I’ve sat down and chatted to you guys on here, even though it’s been barely a week! But what a week it’s been..

I turned 26 on Wednesday! Thank you if you messaged me on Instagram, it was so nice and I was so surprised by all the love on there. I had a great day and got so many amazing presents that I didn’t expect, but the best one by far was my new gorgeous nephew born in the early hours of the next day. We zipped up to London on my birthday evening and saw him the following day.

I’m obsessed with him. He’s only a few days old and I’m at home now, but I’m missing him so much already. He’s just perfection. I feel so proud of my sister that it’s quite hard to put it into words (or I’ll cry so I’ll just be quiet)

It was a crazy few days in London (especially for this home bird) so I’m just resting in this quiet time at home to recuperate a little bit. Having long baths, doing my yoga practice, meditating and reading. Plus not feeling guilty about leaving the sofa! It’s actually Dans birthday this week so I’ve booked us a surprise weekend away which will be good to spend some quality time together.

I’ve also got the week off work so I’m planning on getting back into the gym- finally, doing some stuff around the house, and I’ve got another crystal therapy session booked for this week too which I always find so beneficial. I’m currently writing this on Sunday morning where I’m hoping I’ll go for a run today, but staying in my dressing gown is rather tempting I must say. The only other thing I have on today’s agenda is to paint my nails and do a face mask- sounds pretty idyllic to me.


What’s your life been like lately?
